That's Florida

Alligator Forces Walmart To Lock Doors:
6-foot Beast Makes Unwelcome Appearance At Apopka, Orlando Store

Not too long ago, my husband was standing at a nearby golf course and he looked over and saw a small gator standing next to him.

Years ago, while we were canoeing on the Hillsborough River, we had a huge gator go underneath our canoe and my husband was very angry with me because I was more afraid of a dragonfly than a creature that could eat us both.

Life in Florida.

Cube - What a Florida woman you are.

I have to agree with your husband and I would be afraid of the gator.

I don't know what it means to be a Florida woman. I just know I hate bugs! My husband knows this even when he steers the canoe into bushes where there are millions of spiders and I'm the one in the front of the boat. I could throttle him for that.

I was going to write something about alligators, but I lost it when I read that Hal 9000 big red eye watching me and had all my data correct.

Jan: lol. Our bookkeeper had no idea what Hal 9000 was and when we explained it to her she said, "Maybe that's why you're having so many problems with your computer".

I wonder if it is difficult to outrun an alligator?

Those dragonflies are man eaters.

Granny Annie: They are faster on land than people think. They look big and lumbering, but don't let that fool you. I wouldn't want to try and outrun one.

And if they catch you in the water, they roll you over and over until you drown, and then they eat you.

WomanHonorThyself: lol. When I moved here from Manhattan, I got a real fast education.

Woodsterman (Odie): As long as they're not woman eaters I'll live
